Chi Nei Tsang: a blending of breath, massage, and applied chi kung Chi Nei Tsang

Like Trying to Describe the Taste of Bananas:  My Experience of the Chi Nei Tsang Class
                                By: Margaret Miller, LMT
This October I attended the Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage Class in Savannah.  The class was one of the most unique classes I have ever attended.  Educated in three different ‘energy’ techniques, including CranioSacral, this was my first class combining hands on working with meridians. I found Mary Ellen Derwis-Balaz a remarkably gifted teacher. These are a few of her quotes:
“There is nothing new under the Sun. It’s all the same thing.”
“Most of what I teach, whether you remember, you already know.”
“Everyone is unique.  Chi Nei Tsang does not measure by centimeters.  Every therapist will work differently.”
“Intent is the primary modality.  Use gentle, nonintrusive contact.”
“The breath is essential for bringing in the Chi.”
There was structure and sequence in the class, but it wasn’t ridgid.  I found the work comfortable to give and receive.  My classmates had a variety of experiences and had no problems following instructions.
I do hope that Mary Ellen will be able to fill a certification class in Georgia.  I want to take the class, not for the CE hours, but for the knowledge of this unique modality.

Chi Nei Tsang: Is it time to make some deep changes? Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage

This is massage for the mind ... through the body.

The first time I crossed the threshhold of "be in the tao", I was a mess - stressed and tired. Mary Ellen asked me what kind of massage I wanted and I literally put myself in her hands to decide.

She chose a chi massage. Within minutes, everything inside me changed. I had visions. I gained clarity. I felt peaceful, yet energized. Creative ideas flowed in my dreams and work for weeks. Everything seemed easier, somehow.

It was like a breakthrough after years of serious therapy, but without uttering a word or picking at old emotional wounds.

So, of course, I went back.

"be in the tao" is in Brecksville. The little corner space on the second floor "feels" good. There's a small fountain, Origami cranes floating over the massage table, and I like the music with gongs, chimes & birdsong. Her table is nicely padded and comfortably cozy warm.

This time, I wanted to explore the belly massage. It's a detox massage. Who doesn't need to do a little seasonal cleanse. I know its effects are different for everyone. For me, it was like psychedelics without drugs, time-travel sans space suit, and more visions. Let's just say  I'll update the post if any of them manifests, and leave it at that.

The point is, Mary Ellen dispenses more than muscle manipulation. Ask about the three-years comatose client who, after Mary Ellen's work, is now showing responsiveness to stimulus, for example.
 

I started going to Mary Ellen for some different Chi Kung classes. They taught me SO much!!! I felt so much better after learning how to breathe properly, stretch and meditate. I was having issues getting pregnant, got some belly work done and ended up pregnant a few months later. Might be related, might not be ;) I like to think it helped! While pregnant I took more classes with her and that's where I really learned how to control my breathing, which helped more than any lamaze class did!

As for her massages. The Best! THE most comfortable massage bed on earth. She makes the room so serene and you just feel so peaceful during the massage. I felt personal breakthroughs while on her table.

I highly suggest seeing Mary Ellen.

By Chris Olsen Real Estate Broker Owner with Olsen Ziegler Realty Email Short URL Share: October 18, 2009 08:20 pm Two years ago, I was having a lot of pain in a specific area of my lower back that nothing I did (stretching, Advil, posture awareness, etc.) seemed to help one bit. After months and months of realizing it wasn't getting any better, I decided to seek out the massage therapist that my wife used recently when I gave her a gift certificate for a general massage. I went to see Mary Ellen Derwis Balaz. To describe Mary Ellen as simply a licensed massage therapist is a gross simplification of this amazing woman's professional talents. She knows numerous types of massage therapies as well as a host of other related capabilities that I can't begin to fathom. Mary Ellen pinpointed my problem with the muscle and nerves affected, described how they are suppose to work, what was happening now, what she needed to do to correct the imbalance, and how long it would take to get me back to a normal state and also be pain free. In short, she was right on the mark 100%. After each session, it literally was like I was on another planet in a different dimension -- to say that just doesn't do it justice. For anyone who has been in the hands of a truly gifted and skilled licensed massage therapist knows exactly what I mean. For those of you who have never experienced this, I highly encourage you to do so, it will do wonders for your health and state of mind. It is truly mind blowing and body altering how one's body can respond to and change for the better with a skilled professional. The hot rocks were out of this world -- and at the end of each session, I think I only half knew where I was. My wife also echos the same sentiments. I can't begin to describe how intelligent, professional and with such exceptional communication skills Mary Ellen possesses. Please Note: I do NOT receive any financial or otherwise benefit from this simple recommendation from one professional to another. Moreover, I take recommendations very seriously and only recommend professionals whom I absolutely trust and Mary Ellen is one of these rare finds.

What can I say about an experience that is life altering in a gentle, subtle, comforting way that transcends words?  Well here goes...I have been a client of Mary Ellen's for many years  (off and on ) due to many transitions in both our lives. The first sessions with Mary Ellen come to mind for me because I was so anxious and fearful to be touched, comforted, or soothed but my entire being needed it so profoundly!  Mary Ellen is a professional who has such experience, integrity, and such a gift to help people connect with their own healing intuition  and she believes in our power to do so if we are open to it!  She is the guide and we follow....she makes it easy!   The space where you start this journey is so lovely and feels to me like a safe cocoon ...you are just drawn into the nurturing space and let go ...less is more once again!  She is so humble in the work she does always allowing your mind, body, and spirit to take its' own path ..she is on the journey with you.  I mention this because for me this is what makes the experience so different from others I have had and it's a very important difference because I leave with a sense of empowerment about my health, my life and my well being.  Mary Ellen works through massage using many different modalities she has learned and teaches others, including Rieki which is something (much to my surprise) you can even practice on yourself!  Long story short ...a session with Mary Ellen goes beyond the time spent in her sanctuary there ..it follows you home and you can't wait to get back for more!  She never stops learning and growing in her practice and inspires me!>

I took my son to Mary Ellen to attend a "Chi Kung" class and have been going back for almost five years.   After taking the first class of gentle stretching and exercise, my fibromyalgia immediately started to improve.    During times of stress, I have gone to Mary Ellen for massage.     Mary Ellen's gifts of moving energy to expel physical pain or emotional stress are unmatched in our geographical area.

Mary Ellen's knowledge of the intricate workings of the human body meshed with her training in energy work make the most wonderful combination and best healing of mind and body that you could ever expect.    

When you take care of yourself - you will find the energy to take care of those around you in a more calming and loving nature.

... I greatly appreciate Mary Ellen's knowledger base, the generous ways in which she shares it, and her respectful, direct, no-nonsense and approachable style of instruction. I've learned so much, refreshed much old knowledge from years ago and am eager for more more more!...
